      Why even bother with a challenge like this. Work up to a 3 minute plank, anything over 3 minutes you are on a diminishing return. When you have achieved that move on to a harder exercise like an L-sit, HLR or elbow lever.

      PBF is meant to be about efficiency

              Don't give up, move to a harder variation.

              A parallel would be chronic cardio vs sprints, you achieve more during the short high intensity sprint session than in a long cardio session. Why do a 10 mins plank when 1 min L-sit or elbow lever would be more effective.

                        well I so don't think that I will be able to do that one, however plank was 1 minute 10 sec this morning. How far will I get in 288 days !!!!
                        and I don't really do photos. Don't look so great in real life let alone a photo !!!!! However If I ever get abs to die for - I promise that i will post a picky of them - just for you Seaweed !!! LOL

                          I participated in a Plank Off (one time only) just a month or two ago at the end of a CrossFit WOD. I did 2;33, and one of the dudes there did over 8 minutes. It was the box record at the time and probably still is.

                            There are some insane numbers on this thread!

                            Is everyone doing it with the Stick that has to touch all three elements of the plank?

                            I always do it with the stick and my record is 2.10 so massive kudos go to some of those with much bigger numbers!

                            Train hard, eat well and love life

                              I have a 15 second improvement from 39 sec last week to 54 sec today. Small improvement, but a good start.
